Taylor Banark and Kaysee Lewis each scored goals in the second half on Saturday to lift North Platte to a 3-1 victory over Columbus at Bauer Field.

"Columbus is a very aggressive team and every time we play them, they come for a hard-fought battle," said NPHS girls' soccer coach Sarah Kaminski. "Our girls rose to the occasion. The girls played really well."

Right before halftime, the Lady Dawgs, undefeated at 8-0, scored the first goal when Maggie Bianco found the back of the net.

It remained 1-0 until about 10 minutes left when Banark scored an insurance goal for a 2-0 lead.

If that wasn't enough Lewis added another one for good measure a couple of minutes later.

The Lady Bulldogs have had some potent attacks over the years, but this year's team may be the most dangerous because of its balance. Kaminski said that her team's relentlessness paid off late against Columbus.

"It helps reassure what I say; keep going and going and going," she said. "They'll eventually fall in. We've been playing good teams and we've been able to score goals against them."

With about five minutes left in the game, the Discoverers (5-6) got on the board with their first goal but it was too late and North Platte came away with another win.
